University has the potential to be the most fun 3 years of your life, why let drugs ruin this. Being a student is a fantastic eye opener but many of you will encounter possible moments where you will be offered or around people under the influence of drugs. This will be a stern test of your will power, so understanding what changes and effects you will experience on drugs is vital for you to understand why you are going to say NO!!
